Dendrobium spectabile (email for availability)

This orchid is highly sought for its unusual fragrant flowers. The cream and burgundy petals and sepals are very curly, curling and twisting into all kinds of shapes. The labellum is striped in a veiny pattern, and it curls too. The funky flowers bloom early Winter to Spring. If you collect plants, I highly recommend this unique orchid.

Description

This species enjoys bright indirect light and high humidity, tolerating some direct sun as long as it isn’t the scorching afternoon sun. They should be placed where they can get some air circulation to keep their leaves cooled off and the roots drying properly. Pot in a mix that is chunky, airy and well draining. Allow the potting mix to dry slightly in between watering, it enjoys staying slightly moist but not soggy! Protect from freezing temperatures.
